Catalog Number: 1137
Chemical Name: 4-Hydroxy-3-methoxy-[(2S,3aR,3bS,6aR,9aR,9bR,10R,11aR) -3a,3b,6,6a,9a,10,11,11a-octahydro-6a-hydroxy-8,10-dimethyl-11a-(1-methylethenyl)-7-oxo-2-(phenylmethyl)-7H-2,9b-epoxyazuleno[5,4-e]-1,3-benzodioxol-5-yl]benzeneacetate
Biological Activity
Potent analog of capsaicin that is an agonist at vanilloid receptors (Ki = 43 pM). Like capsaicin, it acts as a selective modulator of primary afferent neurons. Also available as part of the Vanilloid TRPV1 Receptor Tocriset™.

Molarity Calculator
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution

The molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) x Volume (L) x Molecular Weight (g/mol)
An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator:
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
